Legendary linebacker Lawrence Taylor’s Super Bowl XXV ring was up for sale, and a legend from a different industry ended up with the winning bid.
It’s being reported by Jay Glazer that Charlie Sheen paid $230K for the ring, adding to his sports memorabilia stash. Sheen also owns Babe Ruth’s 1927 World Series ring, and at one time was in possession of the ball that rolled between Bill Buckner’s legs during the 1986 World Series.
No doubt the warlock will be using his latest purchase to funnel drugs into his body somehow.
The Los Angeles Kings have advance to the Stanley Cup Finals, and celebrities are taking notice.
Office star Rainn Wilson tweeted the following, and in response the Kings sent him some tickets for a game in a very cool way if you’re a fan of the show.
Wilson, aka Dwight Schrute, and co-worker Jim Halpert often exchange in shenanigans on the show, which at one point included putting Dwight’s stapler in jello.
So as you can see, it was super cool and awesome of the Kings to deliver the tickets in jello. I might root for them in the Finals solely because of this, which shows just how depressing being obsessed with a show can get.
Fox’s singing show The Voice has apparently warranted a dating game ripoff show that will include several athletes.
Rob Gronkowski and Ndamukong Suh, along with retired NFLer Warren Sapp, who was recently disposed of by the NFL Network, will be competing.
Pauly D, The Situation and Joe Jonas to name a few non-sports celebrities will also be taking part.
The show will feature four celebrities seated facing away from the prospective, non-famous suitor, who will try to charm them with his or her voice and personality. If the celebs like what they hear, they can turn around. At least that’s how it works on The Voice.
The show will be called The Choice, and will feature Carmen Electra among the women on the celebrity panel.
